What I Feel

Your absence hurts me

Why can’t you be by my side?

Mentally killing me


Why are people cruel?

Insecurities haunt me

Please just let me be


Leave me be, I said!

Anxiety I need not

Depression follows


Stress is an old friend

He comes knocking at worst times

He laughs at failure


Someone rescue me

Someone save me from my mind

Will you comfort me?


Holding back her tears

She smiles, though blue eyes show fear

Fear of emotion


Emotions are gone

I cannot feel your hatred

Comfortably numb


Darkness surrounds me

Little tears escape blue eyes

Silently drip down


Soft pillow now soaked

Nothing left behind sad eyes

Sleep now, though you hurt


Dream of what will be

Hope for better tomorrow

Stay strong, know you’re loved
